3 easy ways to Re-purpose your jeans

There are several ways to re-purpose old cloths. And jeans being a sturdy material is my favorite choice for re-purposing.If you have an old jean that dose not fit you anymore, or old men's jean or new jean that your brother or father got, that does not fit them and cannot be returned, don't throw them. Just re-purpose them. Here are few things that i did with a jean.

Things needed:

2.Hot glue gun

1.Convert it into a cool travel Bermuda shorts.

All you need to do is cut the bottom of the jean to the length you want the Bermuda shorts to be.
and fold the ends to give it a casual look. you can also use a fading solution if you want the shorts to be a little faded.

2.Make a Toiletry travel bag,

Don't throw the remains of the jeans after you have made the Bermuda shorts. Convert it to a super easy, no stitch toiletry bag, that you can use when you travel.

3.Make a roll on art storage kit.

The Queen

Vas continued the story…Check out the previous story here written by Megha.

"Oh stop it vas, are you going to tell her the history of our land and everything on the very first day? let her take some rest, and explore our world" said deb a motherly lady who just came in with fruits and some snacks.

"I would love to hear more" protested priya, but was escorted by  nach and chi-chi to her palace.

"Please take adequate rest, you have a long day tomorrow" said chi-chi with a smirk,and nach behaved in as if priya was never in the room.

"What is going on? why am i the only person in such a huge palace? and who is deb?"

"You will know when you have to know.My orders where to escort you to your palace, and if you need anything to eat, things are in the 'kholodno' "
"oh it is the fridge in your language" said chi-chi and walked away without turning back.

lying on her bed, priya was thinking hard "How did i come here? I always wanted to travel back in time and go to the middle of the earth, i have also wanted to be a queen, but i am a definite muggle".

"Then how can i be the queen of a land where there are dragons and wizards and elves and other charecters that i have seen only in books?"

"Is this a dream"? Priya pinched herself and it hurt. "ouch.. so its definitely not a dream. "

"I am confused,scared and angry. why is no one answering to my question? i need to go home. i miss my mom"

several flashes of her reading a book,wanting to change the world, fighting with her mom, taking her bike to the marina beach, trying to save a rabbit in the beach came across. Thinking hard, priya fell asleep.

Suddenly priya woke up to the sound of some men

"tsss , ostanovit' yego ona mogla menya razbudila"

 "prinesti svet blizhe"

 She was not able to understand the language so she went closer to the window to see what was happening.

 Priya opened the window, she could recognize nach with a lantern, and saw something that made her to freeze in shock.
